Veritas NetBackup Review
Helped Improve Our Data Replication Among Critical DCs

Improvements to My Organization

Data replication among critical DCs across regions.

Valuable Features

AIR and duplication, overall management and troubleshooting.

Room for Improvement


Stability Issues

Not since version 7 and higher.

Scalability Issues

The number of media servers is restricted and this should be pointed out by the vendor.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Quite good. Seven out of 10.

Previous Solutions

We switched due to better scalability and overall app management.

Initial Setup

It's pretty straightforward for a simple configuration but much more complex for a large environment, with many features and tuning required.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Acceptable if you need to implement it for larger environments, e.g. over 1000 clients. For smaller setups it might be too expensive.

Other Solutions Considered

IBM TSM, EMC NetWorker.

Other Advice

This is a mature product, one of the market leaders, so if you can afford to purchase and have significant infrastructure to be protected, then go ahead and speak to Veritas.
